Covid-19 Visitor Safety

Employee vaccinations
99% of our team is fully vaccinated.

Mask policy
The CDC’s recently implemented means of measuring COVID-19 Community Levels place Allegheny County at a Medium Community Level based on a combination of hospitalization and new case data. At this level, masks are optional indoors for people who are vaccinated, not at high risk, have not tested positive, are not experiencing Covid-19 symptoms, and have not recently been exposed to someone who tested positive.

The Frick Pittsburgh remains a mask-friendly environment for all. Many vaccinated staff and visitors will continue to wear a mask. Disposable masks are available free of charge at the Grable Visitor Center.

Proof of Covid-19 vaccination or recent negative test required for certain activties
The Frick requires proof of full Covid-19 vaccination or a recent negative Covid-19 PCR test for visitors attending all events held in The Frick Art Museum Auditorium and certain events held in the Education Center.

People are considered fully vaccinated 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer, Moderna, or AstraZeneca-Oxford vaccines, or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.

The Frick accepts all reasonable proofs of vaccination, including a CDC card (original or photo reproduction) accompanied by photo ID; apps such as CLEAR, VaxYes, and VaccTrack; and official immunization records from outside the U.S. accompanied by photo ID. Children without photo ID must be accompanied by an adult. To obtain a free, easy-to-schedule Covid-19 vaccine, click here.

For children under 5 and others unable to demonstrate proof of vaccination, the Frick will accept a negative Covid-19 PCR test taken within 48 hours of visiting. Proof of a negative PCR test, likewise, may be presented in physical or digital form, and must include the guest’s name, testing location, date administered, and test result.

Stay home if you are sick
If you are sick, experiencing symptoms of Covid-19, or have recently been exposed to someone who tested positive, please plan to visit at another time. We will be happy to refund or exchange your ticket, no questions asked.

Air filtration
The Frick Art Museum, Car and Carriage Museum, and Grable Visitor Center HVAC systems are equipped with Merv 14A filters.

Wash or sanitize your hands
Please wash your hands thoroughly and often. You will also find hand sanitizer available throughout our spaces.
